Now named Oak Valley Vineyard, we treated my friend and her husband who hosted Thanksgiving and lives nearby on the day after. We started with the house bread and kalamata olive dip and Shrimp Anjuillo (sp?). The guys actually split one of the shrimp down the middle to neither would be shorted. Then we had the Ribeye, Quail, Beef Crostini (tenderloin medallions, different toppings and the grilled bread was delicious), and Cilantro Chicken. The preparation was impeccable, all of the steaks were delivered exactly as ordered, the quail was excellent, the sausage stuffing was the perfect level of spice and my Cilantro Chicken had a really yummy cream sauce with a hint of cilantro. All sides were great - jalapeno creamed spinach, fingerling potatoes and my hubbie even ate his leftover scalloped potatoes for breakfast (with a little steak and eggs, the Ribeye was 16 oz). For dessert we ended with two orders of the sticky pudding, they could have been a little more generous with the sauce, licking it from the plate was a little embarrassing.
We drooled over the Sunday Brunch and Lunch menus (they open at 11, Tuesday - Sunday) and I think I may have to get a late start on my way back from my next trip to SA so we can try the brunch.
They have retained the previous décor, which is twinkly lighting and romantic, and the service (Ashley) was also spot on. The new version of the Vineyard is definitely worth the drive out 3009.
